Hi. I'm considering getting an iPad next year in order to have portable internet access. I've never gotten a laptop, and I don't really care to use a phone for internet access. I'm thinking that the iPad, with its compact size, but much larger screen than a phone, would be ideal for my needs. I enjoy reading the news, checking discussion sites, especially this one, googling things I'm curious about, looking on Craigslist, things like that. How would the iPad work for that, and tell me about the different options of iPad.
